11m – CB – Freeband – Calling Channels

 

I heard yesterday that there were some rebroadcasts of CB traffic on the local ham radio repeater. I am not sure who or what was going on at the time but a listener noted a frequency of 27.445 MHz being mentioned. That is outside of the traditional 40 Channel assignments. Many users have the Rangers or modified ham radio gear.The Icom 718 is a popular freebander radio due to its lower cost but the high end operators will have the Yaesu FT1000 MP radios.

Interesting chatter as always with ham like QSOs about the weather, radios and antennas and propagation conditions. Unlike some of the nonsense that goes on lower 38 you will find some interesting operators on the Freeband. You will be surprised at the stuff going on and digital modes has been heard.
